Rated 4 out of 5 by darlington Just love this!
I saw this and thought it was so "me". a little unique summer top. Also thought that it might not work on me, and I also know that sometimes One September is hit or miss with my body type-5'5", hippy, size 8/10 on top and 12/14 on bottom. But I wanted to try it anyway. Guess what? I ended up loving it! Tried both the M and L and went with the M-the L was way too baggy in the chest/pits area. I love the way it drapes in the front. I tried both colorways but ended up with the red/gray one-it's more bold,and I have more things to match it, plus I am blonde and the other colorway can make me look washed out. It's a soft jersey blend, with nice cap sleeves,and the front pleating hides my mom of three tummy without making me look pregnant. All in all, a great tee! we will see how it WASHES:./

Rated 3 out of 5 by cirone Eye-catching, but dry clean only?
Got this shirt immediately, without trying it on, because retail price was reasonable and the design is exactly the mix of modern & feminine I like. Then a week later, I returned it. This is why...
1 - The jersey of the body of the shirt makes it fit great, but it also makes me wonder if it will start pilling like so many other Anthro shirts (which is why I prefer to stick with non-jersey Anthro for now...if it's going to pill, might as well go cheaper like Gap)
2 - It's dry clean only. So I love the pleats, but to keep the non-jersey pleated front looking awesome, I'm going to have to dry clean it every time? Ouch. It fits too snugly under the armpit to even think about wearing this more than once before a trip to the cleaners. Such a hassle.
3 - Looks best if I'm still. When I started moving around, sometimes the pleated front would catch the wind and it looked kind of muu-muu/tent/maternity-like. Eek.
So...if you're ok w/ all those things (because it is a cute shirt!), I'd recommend it. But for someone as practical (too practical?) as me, I had to force myself to send it back. I'm normally a 4/6 and the small was perfect.

Rated 3 out of 5 by lrr1980 Very low neckline
When I tried this on, it fit nicely. When I wore it around, at the end of the day, the neckline drops, so low that my the tops of my bra shows. I can actually pull it down to my expose navel! I do have a small chest and a petite torso, but the XS seems way to low. I had to wear a cami underneath, which is in addition to the two layers of the front of the top: the sheer pleated over the jersey. This detracts from the cool summer feel this top suggests. I like the look, but it turns indecent. Also, the gray is a bit more dark than in the pictures. Maybe a larger chest and more broad shoulders would do this top justice.
